Although in the past we specialised in helping large scale manufacturers where high volume sheet cutting and complex cutting lists are the norm, we've extended to develop wood cutting software for small workshop and cabinet shops. Magi-Cut Express and Magi-Cut Intro are designed to cope with low to medium volume orders.

Magi-Cut Software Ltd, located in Bristol, United Kingdom are the developers of Magi-Cut (also known as Cut Rite), and since its first launch in 1981 have accumulated over 150 man years of experience in all types of cutting optimisation software, nesting and CNC router software.

More recently we’ve added Version V10.0 to our product selection. V10.0 offers better data handling in part list and board list, a wizard for importing parts from XLS files, and enhanced pattern graphics whilst also ensuring our offering is up to date and compatible with Windows 10.

Customer Focused Business

Our business has always been focused on the needs of our customers, developing woodworking software that is useful, easy to use, is available at an affordable price and provides an excellent ROI. Existing users have access to a remote support system so they can get answers to queries as quickly as possible. Software upgrades are rolled out in a user friendly way ensuring no loss of data or cutlists.

Whatever your needs, whether it’s panel cutting for caravans or producing luxury finish cabinets we can offer advice on the best woodworking program to suit your needs.

We know changing the way you do things is a big commitment, that’s why we offer a 30 day free trial of Magi-Cut Intro and Express so you can try before you buy.
